Red Bull Kiteboarding Tour

When: Wed., June 23, 8 p.m. and Thu., June 24, 10 a.m. 2010

Admit it. The time has come for you to give up your dreams of playing professional basketball or soccer and replace them with a new one: kiteboarding. You could snatch a sponsor, travel the world “chasing wind” in relative anonymity, and throw down with crazy locals. You would have it good. This week in Charleston, it’s a kiteboarding groupie’s dream (assuming that kiteboarding groupies exist). Professional kiteboarders Aaron Hadlow, Susi Mai, and Ruben Lenten are traveling down the East Coast this month on the Red Bull Kiteboarding Tour, making various stops to hit the waves. The tour will blow into the Charleston area on June 23. The three will be at Air kiteboarding shop in Mt. Pleasant at 8 p.m. on Wednesday to hang out and meet fans. Then on Thursday, they’ll be on Kite Beach on Sullivan’s Island to test out the winds of the Lowcountry coast. You can get instant updates on the tour by texting “KITE” to 66937. —Cameron Jones
